Katherine Waterston Joins Steve Jobs Biopic Opposite Michael Fassbender

Universal has tapped “Inherent Vice” actress Katherine Waterston to play Steve Jobs’ first wife Chrisann Brennan in Universal’s “Jobs,” opposite Michael Fassbender.

Seth Rogen is on board to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. Danny Boyle will direct from Aaron Sorkin’s script, based on Walter Isaacson’s biography.

Scott Rudin, Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady are producing.

Universal picked up “Jobs” out of turnaround last month after Sony let it go.
